Generous residents at DAMHA properties in Ferryhill have donated over £1,000 to the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

Like millions across the world, Patricia Howard and Shirley Read were shocked by the images of Russian invasion of Ukraine.

They delivered envelopes to fellow residents at Joseph Patterson Crescent and William Keers Crescent, Ferryhill, offering them chance to donate.

“When we collected the envelopes in the total donated came to £1,165, which I thought was a very good amount,” said Mrs Read.

She added : “Many of the residents were born around the time of the second world war or had relatives who served. We have all been shocked at the images, perhaps we thought we would never see times like that again in Europe.”

The money has now been sent to the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal being run by the UK Disasters Emergency Committee.

The Appeal raised over £200 million in the two weeks after it was launched and will fund aid work inside Ukraine and in neighbouring countries, where over 5m people have had to flee their homes.

As well as helping people with their immediate needs, the funds will also support refugees and displaced people over the coming months and years.

“This amazing total shows what’s possible when we all come together as charities, as communities, as a country, to help people who are facing unimaginable hardships,” said Sue Inglish, DEC Chair of Trustees. “Thank you so much to everyone who has leant their support to this appeal.”
